When we gather to hear the stories of other women, the common, unexplainable, gut wrenching & love filled stories, of other women; who like us are battling the shoulds, trying to do it all, and often feel like a hot mess, something special happens. There is a deepness felt and richness gained that is hard to put your finger on. Their courage to be vulnerable inspires us… binds us. If you have ever gathered with women – in a truly authentic way, be it over a glass of wine, your kid’s play-date, or paint canvases – you know what I mean.
Stories are very healing and we benefit from getting the opportunity to pass on our wisdom to others. This is especially powerful for those of us who do not always feel that we have the chance to be heard. A sense of connection and belonging is strengthened when tell and when we hear stories…we recognize that we are all experts in our own lives and that each of us is doing the best we can with what we have…absolutely liberating!
Join our welcoming hosts, Dionne Thomson of In Her Element (Midland, ON) and Leanne Quesnelle of Truth Connections Holistic Coaching (Barrie, ON) who both believe in, and have personally experienced, the power of storytelling. In their homes they will graciously and masterfully hold space as we experience the positive & supportive energy created from listening to and exploring the 3 stories of strength and vulnerability shared by volunteer speakers.
